BROOKLYN - The city's effort to keep kids in school safe is getting a boost as officials announce plans to expand their anti-bullying campaign.

Some of the new measures include increasing safety teams and educating officers. Officials also plan to award schools that focus on stopping hurtful attacks.

New York schools have been working hard over the past few years to increase tolerance among students. Schools currently hold a "Respect for All Week," conduct programs to teach kids how to understand and respect diversity, as well as encourage students to report bullying incidents.

Officials say the efforts have led to an increase in awareness and the number of incidents reported.
